Do wiki-pages have parents?An article-level inquiry into wikipedia's inequalities is a 2009 conference paper written in English by Nagaraj A., Dutta A., Seetharaman P., Roy R. and published in 19th Workshop on Information Technologies and Systems, WITS 2009.

[edit] Abstract

We hypothesize that articles on Wikipedia have "parents" who contribute a significant portion of their edits. We establish a notion of inequality based on the Gini Co-efficient for articles on Wikipedia and find support for the existence of this phenomenon of parenting. We base our study on data collected from the Tagalog and Croatian Wikipedias. Ultimately we claim that our research has significant implications for policy for both Corporate Wikis as also for Wikipedia. We state these implications and also suggest directions for future research.
